He was made to appear in court wearing "a pair of shorts and a green T-shirt torn on the shoulder with sand stain on the back," according to Punch News.

A doctor had reportedly certified the suspect fit to stand trial despite personal reservations as contained in a report by Punch.

“What have I done to you people? They have been beating me; no good food; I have been locked up in one place since August 30 last year; why are they taking my case personally?

"Let me face my trial alive, why do you people want to kill me,” Evans said in an emotional burst in court.
